ChiPPy-ShaBBy *Out & About In-The-SOUTH*...


Prompted by an Antique Bottle Show
 in Chattanooga, TN -
Frog Husband & I spent the last week doing a *Blurrrrr-Tour* "Of-The-South"
-which included parts of Georgia, North & South Carolina, & Tennessee...



 We *PIGGED-OUT* on some regional BBQ
 at a Fun and Funky Restaurant just a few miles outside
of  Asheville, North Carolina's UpScale Downtown Area...
**LUELLA'S BAR-B-QUE**



We saw a good number of ANTIQUE STORE SIGNS, but most of the
shops we stopped at were what I call **BROWN-OUTS**  ~
 Along with being full of NOT the good kind of Junk!!!

Knowing that our main focus WAS NOT ChiPPy-SHaBBy ShoPPing, & the fact that we flew-in,  - DID NOT STOP ME when I found 2-Killer Pieces at SHABBY SHACK -that I had to have!!!
We found a Bottle Collector at the Show, who is hauling them home for me!!! ~ Can't Wait!*!*!

 

These pics were the ONLY  Quality ChiPPy-SHaBBy Pieces
I might have considered purchasing on our entire trip... 
Sad to say, - The areas we just "happened upon by chance"
just didn't have any ViNtaGe ChiPPy-WHiTeS to speak of...
******
 I JUST KNOW THERE IS SOME BLOGGER OUT THERE ~
THAT'S GOING TO TELL ME ABOUT THE
 BEST-EVER SHABBY SHOP I MISSED - ONLY A FEW MILES
 FROM WHERE I MIGHT HAVE BEEN?!?!?


I LoVed Downtown CHATANOOGA, Tennessee, -where the Antique Bottle Show was held!*!*!  Just an AwEsoMe City for WALKING - and did we ever do just that!!!
  FaB Restaurants as well!*!*!   Cooking hot temperatures teetering around 100 degrees - OMG!!!
I Highly Recommend Downtown Chattanooga's FARMER'S MARKET,
Held on Sundays...  I had the BeSt Time Shopping there!!!  
AwEsoMe  Food Choices - Especially the BBQ Pork!!!
Netted some Delicious Peaches & this "Handmade" Seagrass Tote
which will definitely go to some good use!!!
*********

The Vacation IS OVER!!!
Time to get B*U*S*Y
ELKHORN FLEA MARKET Clicking on my heels!!!

THIS SUNDAY!*!*!
AUGUST 9th
Come Shop-My-SHaBBies!*!*!

  1. This is rather spooky as I live about 3 blocks behind Luella's BBQ AND I have a booth at Shabby Shack in Brevard. Shabby Shack isn't really shabby at all, is it?
    Gosh, I wish I had known you were in town, there are more places around.

    1. Hellooooo Back SAS!!!
      OMG!*!*! You're right, SHaBBy Shack ISN'T SHABBY - but I found 2 things that were!!! Pics when I get them at the end of this month!!! AND - loved your neighborhood!!! We walked the "upper historic area" above LUELLA'S BBQ!!! It was a very QUICK TRIP without focusing on SHaBBy ShoPPing - so I did not do any pre-planning on SHaBBy Shops - but would have sooooo enjoyed meeting you and finding out **The Scoop** on SHaBBies IN-YOUR-AREA... Thanks! Jeanine Burkhardt
